This place was mind-blowing sitting out on the patio looking out on to beautiful scenery topped off by amazing food and such a nice ambience. In addition to that shortly after our dinner was finished the harbor was lighting off fireworks and it was incredible....More

Our last visit (1 year ago) was SO good we ordered the exact same thing. We started with two martinis (a bit small and they could use better quality blue cheese olives). Next we ordered a caprese salad and a caesar. Both were underwhelming. The...More

Two of our locations feature Top of the Market, a separate upstairs restaurant where guests can enjoy an expanded wine list, distinctive desserts and exceptional seafood offerings. Overlooking a quiet lagoon from its perch above The Fish Market is our Top of the Market in San Mateo. Opened in 1982, the intimate, elegant setting of this restaurant is enhanced by exhibition-style cooking and superior service. In San Diego, the feature, in addition to white linens, warm teak paneling, large windows and deck, is the spectacular San Diego Bay. Launched in 1989, Top of the Market in San Diego has continued to provide each guest with a memorable dining experience, starting with the best and freshest seafood available.
